Plea for 'forever home' for dog overlooked by 14,000 people

A Darlington rescue centre has put out a plea for help in finding a "forever home" for a dog that has been overlooked by 14,000 potential owners.

Jed, a seven-year-old lurcher, has been with the Dogs Trust in Sadberge since he was four months old.

The trust said he had been taken in by several families in the past but in each case, due to their circumstances changing, he has had to be returned.

His carer at the trust said he was "affectionate" and "fun loving".

Jed's placement at the centre is being funded by the People's Postcode Lottery but his carer, Judith Davidson, said he really needs a permanent "forever home".

She said: "I have seen thousands of dogs find their forever homes over the last seven years but nothing could compare to seeing Jed finding a loving new family of his own.

"Jed is such an affectionate, fun loving dog. I have a real soft spot for him."

The Dogs Trust said Jed would suit a family with older teenagers and someone who only works part time.
